These violins are so good that we have a hard time believing that they are replicas and not fine old Italian violins. Recently we tested more than a dozen new violins and ran across the GCV Cremona replicas and knew right away that we needed to offer these instruments to our customers. We are very proud to be offering such wonderful sounding, beautifully crafted, and easy to play, instruments.
The Goldman model violin replica is a copy of Nathan Milstein's 1716 Stradivarius, which was also his favorite instrument that he played for the rest of his life.
Over 10 years ago, GCV Violins started to emulate Cremonese stringed instruments skillfully according to the Cremonese models, acquiring recognition and achievement in the market. With the well-chosen original grained wood, the authentic crafting style of the curved appearance, the revived antiqued varnish, the traces left on the varnish, and the dulcet sound, the tonal characters of the instruments made by the classic masters reappear. The Cremonese Replicated Violin Series is built with unique characteristics, making them more playable, appreciable and valuable.
